The Croods 3D Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
5 December 2013
  • Conclusion: The Croods offers a hugely satisfying animated movie experience, particularly beyond the fairly stale and predictable superficial dynamics. Under the surface is warm, welcoming story, a fun, honest, heartelft tale of discovery, of satisfaction, of accepting new things, of understanding the greater world. It's a very sweet and touching experience amidst all of the humor, most of which hits and none of which falls completely flat.

  • Conclusion: Not as polished or memorable as the best animated flicks from Disney or Pixar, The Croods is still an entertaining family adventure that should please children with its frequent action and colorful animation. Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, Katherine Keener and Ryan Reynolds provide voice talent, and the Blu-ray features excellent picture and sound plus a few supplements. . What Do You Think?

  • Conclusion: Don't go in expecting creative storytelling. 'The Croods' is basically ' Ice Age ' with better animation and cavemen instead of a mammoth, sloth, and saber-toothed tiger. What separates it from the pack of generic CGI kid movies is the outlandishly fun animation. It's never boring to look at. The creativity that wasn't spent on the story was surely spent on the movie's design. It's only fitting that this Blu-ray contain stellar video and tremendous audio.

The Croods (Blu-ray)

  • Summary: When all is said in done, The Croods is your average animated kids’ film. There were a few good bits but really nothing that has me hailing this a classic or something to remember at year’s end.  This could have been so much more, but for me this just fell apart in the story department.  I wanted more bonding between Guy and Grug.  More involvement from the other family members also would have been nice, but they just seemed to be filler.

  • Conclusion: An uneven mix of slapstick, action, and family drama, The Croods never comes together as it intends to. It looks sharp and remains harmless, but fails to make a strong, meaningful impression.

The Croods Blu-ray Review

7 October 2013
  • Excerpt: The Croods inhabit a world of wacky evolution, where birds are covered in turtles shells and land whales munch on ferns, background events which weigh on this primitive family as progress washes over them. Continental drift scrunches them together without the safety of a relied on, damp (and defensive) cave, turning the family into reactionary creatures. They’re led by Guy (Ryan Reynolds), one up on their human evolutionary scale and quick thinking discoverer of fire.

The Croods (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: I was not expecting to be wowed by The Croods , but I did want to see it and I am happy that I did.  While not a great animated feature, it is fun for what it is and made better by its solid animation work and moments of cleverness.  The Blu-ray is a pretty solid choice for anyone looking for great video and sound, but it feels lacking in the extras department.

  • Excerpt: The Croods takes more than a few pages from the James Cameron playbook. Though centered on a family of prehistoric cave people, led by paterfamilias Grug (Nicholas Cage), on the cusp of an extinction-level event, the film's most rousing sequences involve the dazzlingly colorful forested area that exists past Grug's cave and is full of land-whales, flying turtles, bird-piranhas, and one giant-headed sabre-toothed cheetah.

THE CROODS - Blu-ray review

27 July 2013
  • Summary: The first act may be a little slow, but once this animated comedy gets rolling, it’s a rollicking good family movie. No wonder there’s already a TV series and a sequel in development.
